Site Update


Recommended Posts

Anyone have any update/ fix yet?

Being stuck in "mobile version" on a desktop is like wet underwear- it can be dealt with, but everytime you move, you can't forget it is present. :)

Did you try the complex workaround I posted in reply #20? Doing this got me out of mobile mode, after I stuck myself in it while testing.

Quick update for internet explorer users. I have went to Google Chrome (Sad to say, what a day) and I can post photos, again, I believe if one may get the internet explorer updated one may post photos, I have yet to try this method but I am glad to say I think my laptop was the only problem. Except for the mobile, which still is having issues.

Chrome or Firefox are almost always better options for browsing than Internet Explorer. I work in IT at my University and IE 6, 7, 8, and 9 are my worst enemies.

No matter which browser you use, clearing your cache is likely to fix missing images and broken richtext editor buttons. I posted instructions for all major browsers, including mobile, in reply #13.

Switching to another browser would have the same effect, but you don't need to. (I have plenty of dislike for IE too. I'd prefer that everyone use Firefox, but all major browsers are pretty good with web standards nowadays. It comes down to privacy, performance, and choice of features/add-ons.)

You might want to PM Dane. It would be much appreciated.

I sent him a PM the other day with the information I found about the mobile site problem, but it looks like he hasn't got it yet. Until it's fixed, you can do the workaround as long as your browser supports viewing the page's HTML source.

Still stuck in mobile here....

When I do a quote it seems I do not see the person I am quoting until I have made the post. Anyone else seeing that?

Not a big deal, but if I am quoting multiple people it might be a little confusing.

Yep. That's because the top line of the quote box that identifies who is being quoted is now added by JavaScript after the page begins loading rather than being present in the HTML page source from the beginning, and that JavaScript only runs once during page loading, thus it doesn't work when the edit box is modified.

Ah ok, that makes sense! Thanks Jonathan!

Added a new skin for people asking for something other than the default. The old skin is also available to change back to if you prefer under "Change Theme" in the bottom left hand corner.

Also is anyone else still having the issue The Interpreter had?

I see others have been successful at embedding a youtube video since the theme change, but I was have not. Before I would just copy the address bar url and paste it in the forum and it showed up. Not having such luck now. Below is a link I was trying to use in another thread. What am I doing wrong?

Well now a new problem has occurred, I was trying to change over to the new theme and accidentally clicked on the mobile theme and now I am unable to change it back. There is no option to change the theme. The 'full version' button at the page does nothing.

Edit: Thanks Malem! I have the full version back now.

Same issue, but I think that's what was happening before. I was able to get out using Malem's method.

Insert the url with a protocol of http instead of https (secure HTTP).

Since YouTube now uses https by default when you log in, the forum software should be updated to recognize these URLs. Until then, just change https:/​/ to http:/​/

I was able to get it to work by changing to the HTTP as you suggested, and then on the video itself right click and select "Copy Video URL" and paste that into the forum.

Thanks for leading me down the right path, malem!
